Canyonlands National Parks is divided into three main areas with the northern section known as Island in the Sky. It is probably the most frequently and easily visited section of the park. All the main sites are easily accessible as you are situated on the high ground above the rivers and canyons below. The main sites are Mesa Arch (not... More

Here is found a fantastic view, especially as winter comes on and the mountains beyond are snow capped. While not a expansive or deep as the Grand Canyon, the colors compare and when you look at the bottom, you can see there is another canyon inside the canyon. So peaceful, worth the drive.

Deep canyon views rival the grand canyon but without as many people. Visited in October, weather was perfect!

Spent a morning here. Liked Grandview point overlook, Shafer canyon overlook. Lovely views of canyons and rivers flowing through them, plus the La Sal mountain. Well maintained road and good parking. Should not be missed.

I think, one of the main purpose of life is to do what you like, and for me what I like it's everything that can make me feel something different, and to be on the top of a mountain is on of them, this is a beautiful place to spend your time with friends, because although you're going to walk...

The Island In The Sky northern portion of Canyonlands National Park is the most visited part of the park. There is a small but nice visitors center here with an informative film, maps, restrooms etc. There are so spectacular views of the canyons directly across the road from the visitors center, as well as from the Green River Overlook. All... More

With lots of fab walks; mesa arch, grand view point and whale rock it's one not to be missed. The views are fantastic and the walks really short so you get to see a lot in a short space of time.

Don't miss this view. Take the time to bring a snack or full picnic. The hike is well worth the the time as you look over the edge and all the variation of color, rock and textures. The hike is an average skill hike.

This area of the park is the most easily accessible from Moab. It contains a few hikes and lots of 4WD routes including the famous Shafer Trail. Less busy than its neighbour Arches the park includes a number of jaw dropping overlooks. On the way in / out of the park you can also visit Dead Horse Point state park... More
